, abby stoddard, columnist for the hill, michael spir mitt romney is con nish, talk show host and chip saltzman, strategist. i would like to start off with you, is it fair to compare the two tape you the president's tape the conservatives were talking about since last night and the video of congressman ryan saying you 30% of people want to live their lives on welfare is it fair to compare these tapes, especially given the president's tape, then-senator obama, was covered by the media then? >> it a beautiful day in denver today, tamron. first of all. >> nice weather report, eugene. >> obama says nothing new on the tape and it was covered years aleen sirgany but fair it is all fair in politics. if it's on tape, you can put it out. the way it was put out by the daily caller, it was -- i guess you had very to say it was racist in its intent. i mean, clearly, it's supposed to rile up some sort of racial animus against president obama, but he doesn't really say anything in the tape that's all that con throw ver eggs. so i don't know whether it takes the romney/ryan partisans to harp on that.
you have some edge up here. let's start off with michael. one of the polls is pennsylvania as well. the president is up, but i believe now about three points. that is your home state. mark murray and they like to look at state-by-state battleground polls over the national polls so many get caught up in day to day. what's your read, mike condechm? >> it's not the swing state it's cracked up to be. i will believe that it's a true swing state, tamron, when i turn on my own television at home and be inundated with commercials. right now that's just not the case, and money does talk in this circumstance. if all of a sudden both candidates commit to it or if the romney campaign forces obama top defend his turf in pennsylvania, i'll start to feel that way. right now, i don't see it. >> let me play sound, keith, from mark halpern. he was just on with andrea mitchell. here's the intel that he was able to acquire. we're talking with team obama in chicago. let's play it. >> they feel just as good about where they are today as they did two weeks ago. they said clearly public polling shows chan
ed rendell and mayor michael nutter. >>> who will bring the dynamite to denver? a little over the a day for the presidential debate. both president obama and mitt romney getting ready for their first face-off tomorrow night in colorado. doing the hefty lifting on the number two on the ticket and the candidates' wives. mitt romney is in denver where last night he tried to put the kibosh on predebate winning. >> people want to know who is going to win, who will make the biggest difference and scoring of winning and losing. in my view it's not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself, it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> his rival president obama who is in day number three of debate camp in nevada dropped by one of his own campaign headquarters. >> it was very nice, you know. although, basically, they are keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they are making me do my homework. >> despite the best efforts, the drum
the american mainstream. i'm joined by democrat strategist bob shrum and former chair of the rnc michael steele. as i said it's time for president obama to attack. ♪ and we hear it. >> and we're off. >> that is a little bit too jim cramer for some of you perhaps but it is, in fact, my feeling. there comes a time, it's called attack from a defensive position. the president has been attacked. i think it's time to return the favor to romney. your thoughts this week. >> it's what he had to do in the debate, didn't do, and it's what he has to do every day between now and the next debate. he has to draw the contrast on medicare and straighten out this myth that the president cut $716 million from medicare benefits. he didn't. they're cut from medicare providers like insurance companies that are overcharging. he has to attack on the issue of taxes. there aren't enough tax loopholes or tax deductions to pay for romney's tax cut unless you cut into home interest mortgage deductions, unless you get rid of state and local taxes. that will hit the middle class hard. you have to be honest about this. the
. >> let me bring in the "news nation" political panel. chris and michael and jonathan and communications relations director for american cross roads and bobby gosch, deputy international editor for "time" magazine. jonathan, we heard governor romney's speech and saw excerpts before the speech. the hope line is replayed so much. what is the major failure of the obama administration that republicans and romney are referring to? >> well, i think he's talking about what just happened in this fiasco in libya. governor romney had a good week talking about the economy. they want to definele what will be talked about this week on the if foreign policy front. they'll have a hearing about what went on the in libya on the security side leading up to the attack there. that's what he wants to set the stage for. if they talk about foreign policy this week, he wants it to define the terms on which we have that debate. >> because words matter, you started off with with saying i think that's what governor romney was talking about. an ongoing investigation into what happened in libya. obviously, aa he gre
abuse against jerry sandusky. chris? >> i see michael isikoff. can michael move in? because i know michael was in the courtroom. >> hi, chris. yeah, i just came out of the courtroom. >> tell us what it was like in the courtroom. >> a very emotional hearing. you had a number of the victims choked up and broke down in tears. at one point, even joseph mcgettigan, the prosecutor, seemed to choke up at the end of his statement, saying that no words could exist that could repair the damage jerry sandusky had done. sandusky himself, as john said, gave a rambling statement all over the map, talked about his days as a penn state football coach, the agony of defeat as well as the thrills of victory, talked about the times he spent with children and hoped that some glimmer of hope might come out of all this. talked about how in his prison cell, he reached over on his 46th wedding anniversary to hug his wife dottie and banged into a wall. judge cleland was very stern and measured in his talk. he called this a story of betrayal. he said your crime, addressing sandusky, is not just the assault y
and deputy washington bureau chief from "time" michael crowley. last night conservative pundits whipped themselves into a frenzy of expectation, previewing a video of president obama they predicted would change this election as we know it. the daily caller which eventually posted the tape tweeted, obama bombshell video coming soon. check back here at 9:00 p.m. for the full story. the drudge report ran the massive headline obama's other race speech. and just before air time, sean hannity teed up the earth-shattering discovery. >> bombshell is about to be dropped on the 2012 race for the white house because tonight you will hear from barack obama like you have never heard from him before, a video has been uncovered. it contains some of the most divisive class war fair and racially charged rhetoric used by barack obama. >> what piece of sonds pulled from the deepest archives would instantly dismantle president obama's campaign, his entire presidency and forever change the course of the country? a 5-year-old video that everybody saw five years ago. the bombshell of the widely covered speech
correspondent michael isikoff joins us now from outside the courthouse. so, michael, explain how this all went down inside. >> reporter: well, as you mentioned, thomas, it was an emotional, at times gut-wrenching hearing. at least two of the victims who gave statements fought back tears as they talked about the damage sandusky had done to them, but probably the single most powerful moment was from victim number four, who did not break down, seemed almost angry and said "i can never forgive you" to sandusky, addressing him. and among the damage he had done, he cannot let his own child out of sight because of fear of what might happen to him. that's the lasting impact of what jerry sandusky had done to him. jerry sandusky himself gave a long, rambling statement all over the map, seemed to duplicate some of what you heard in that audio statement, and he himself broke down and fought back tears towards the end, but it was hard to see the point that he was going to make. it was very clear, by the way, that judge cleland was not happy about that audio broadcast and talked when he sentenced sandusky,
? michael steele is here with us and cynthia tucker is here as well. thank you, cynthia and michael, there's an old tradition in politics you go to the fringe or hard left or right to win the caucuses and start to move slowly, the big battleship around so by labor day you're ready to confront the enemy at the center. he didn't do that. he stayed right through the summer and masterfully, wednesday, started to go i'm for pre-existing condition coverage, i'm for education and all this good stuff. >> i think part of that, you're right, in your analysis there. that's what happens politically. i think for the romney campaign they took that strategy, elongated it because they had shoring up to do with their base. >> can you pull it off? can you make that switcharoo in september. >> i think you can. >> or october rather. >> i think you can. number one. number two, we saw obama do the same thing. he was to hillary's left, brought it around, started quoting reagan in the fall, started sounding reaganesque. that's where the votes are. >> but your party has gotten so much domination by the tea party p
up. michael steele is a former chair of the rnc as well as an msnbc political analyst and cynthia tucker is a syndicated columnist. thank you. michael, there's on old tradition in politics, you go to your fringe or hard left or hard right to win the primaries and caucuses, and then you start to move slowly so by labor day you're ready to confront the enemy at the center. he didn't do it like that. he stayed right all the way through the summer and maybe masterfully wednesday decided to go with i'm for the 100%. i'm for pre-existing condition coverage, for all this education, all this good stuff. >> i think part of that -- you're right in your analysis, that's exactly what happens politically. i think for the romney campaign they took that strategy, elongated it because they had some shoring up to do with their base. >> can he pull it off? can you make that kind of switcheroo in september? >> i think you can, number one. >> october. >> september/october. i think you can, number one. number two, we saw obama do the same thing, albeit earlier in the process. he was to hillary's left.
questions of my own for the candidates. i'm going to ask michael steele and eugene robinson to fill in for obama and romney and let me ask my "hardball" questions. >>> i'm urging you to do this tonight when it comes down to thinking big. this is "hardball" live from denver, the first presidential debate. welcome aboard!

seen a lot of advertising specifically targeted women here in colorado. >> when michael bennett was running for the u.s. senate those women issues came up again and again and really did turn a great number of voters in the direction of michael bennett. >> i know you are having a fight between the state and localities having to do with fracking and you want to expand energy. it sounds like romney would be on your side on some of these things and the stereotype would be the president wouldn't be on your side with some of these things. >> the president has been. the president asked to look into fracking and found it was safe if done properly. you have to make sure like with any industrial process you don't want people making mistakes. if you look at what inexpensive natural gas has done our co 2 emissions are down where they were during eisenhower's presidency. we are half the way towards achieving protocol even though we didn't vote to accept it. many ways it is a game changer. it is cheaper and creates jobs and cleaner for the air. >> and then colorado will have a boom. >> we are
. >> so, historically, have these showdowns made a real difference in the race? i'm joined now by michael beschloss. good to see you. good morning. >> same here, chris. >> we know mitt romney is practicing, but are they ever spontaneous or always rehearsed? >> they're usually rehearsed because there's too much at stake and you're right. sometimes, a pennant can say something that sounds so rehearsed it just doesn't work. for instance, george h.p. bush when he was vice president was debating against geraldine fer row and said why not harvest moon. >> challengers can benefit from being on stage with an incumbent. we've seen that before. take a look at this clip. >> ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago? >> now, this race has often been compared to the carter reagan race in 1980 and the romney campaign has used that line of attack. is that the idea of what you think we might hear tonight? what kind of zinger are we going to hear? >> well, in reagan's case, he took from franklin roosevelt, who used that in the 1930s over the radio, so these things have a long lineage.
editor to u.s. news and world ror and michael steele is the former chairman of the republican national committee, also an msnbc political analyst. i'm going to try to look at this down the middle. i saw the whole debate today. i think david gregory did a hell of a job. like a referee in a boxing match. each candidate had a tough moment or two. here is warren tripped up, i think, when asked to name a republican she could work with. just name a senator or any bunch of them. here is what she said. let's watch. >> can you name some republicans in the senate today that you are able to work with on big issues, substantive issues, that the countryaces. >> i think probably ruched lugar would be one -- >> he's not going to be there. >> he's not going to be there. >> who else could you name, senator? >> that is a problem. let me do this one -- let me -- >> just let me ask the question. are there any republicans that are going to be in the senate that you feel you could work with substantively and compromise with? >> look, it depends on what the subject matter is. >> what was the problem with nam

. in washington pulitzer prize winning columnist for "the washington post" eugene robinson and michael o'hanlon, senior fellow with the 21st century defense initiative. two men better equipped for today i could not find. eugene, you have been a foreign correspondent in places as far afield as argentina and europe. you know the middle east. mitt romney says he wants to arm the syrian rebels with serious amounts of military hardware. i ask you, eugene, is america ready and willing to start a proxy war with iran on the road to damascus? >> well, good question, and first of all, i think you have to ask given the way romney has changed his policy in various areas, you have to ask is he serious about that. but if he is, that's the one sort of bit of news that came out of his speech today. it's not as if we're not already at least assisting in the arming of the rebels. there was an intelligence finding by president obama that said we could give covert aid essentially through our allies, through the saudis and the qataris, but we have discouraged them from providing heavy weapons because we're a

. michael, i've read your outstanding piece in which you talk about the fact that the process of fact-checking by voters has actually declined. it's almost a suggestion we've had so many lies through this campaign, and i can think of at least 60 delivered by the romney/ryan camp, that people are just not responding to it anymore. >> you know, the irony is the press is actually much better at calling out these deceptions but the public has not yet shown they are willing to move on these deceptions. they don't -- they for give their own guy for deceiving and they love blaming the other guy for deceiving. there hasn't been any punishment. if you're a political consultant or political professional, you know other than sending eames to fact-checking sites or writing an open letter, you don't have to worry too much if your ad contains something, which several of these ads have. you've discussed a number on your show that aren't factually accurate. >> john, isn't the temptation for the president here, who, let's be honest, is a very self-controlled and disciplined man, but isn't the problem

strategist bob shrum and former chair of the rnc michael steele. gentlemen, as i said, it's time for president obama to attack. you first, bob shrum. first the bugle call. >> you sound like jim cramer. [ laughter ] >> we're both from philly. seriously, though, my argument is here -- you can say what you want, from this [ muted ] where we go and focus on the big issues that separate these two candidates. your thoughts, bob shrum? that first debate was toesed to be about domestic issues. none of those issues came up. i think in the next debate, in the town hall format, the president has to make sure they're front and center. it's about what's said day after day after day. >> right. i would add one issue to the list you gave. the president has to win this medicare issues. seniors are too critical a voting bloc to let romney tell the lie that $716 billion was tut from medicare benefits. >> do you agree with us, i think from a different perspective. this election is about big issues, not who is a better debater. >> i think it's to really -- for the people of the country or the people
, editorial director of the "huffington post," and the honorable michael nutter, mayor of philadelphia and presidential surrogate in this tough campaign. gentlemen, thank you for joining us. always go to the elected official first. mr. mayor, what needs to be done right now to right this ship, to get obama back on a winning course? >> well, the president is on a winning course and as you laid out earlier, chris, with all the things that mitt romney either lied about or denied about, what we call that in philadelphia is just lying, denying, and alibiing. and if that's what you're going to spend your time doing and focus on style, then you'll have a pretty decent night. president obama is focused on substance. let me give you three quick numbers here, chris, which i think ultimately is what this election is all about. 31 straight months of job growth here in the united states of america. 5.1 million jobs created in the private sector. and unemployment at 7.8%, the lowest it's been since the president took the oath of office in january of 29. things are moving in the right direction. this
hosts the presidential debate. joining me denver's mayor michael hancock. good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> this is the only debate specifically geared to domestic issues. what based on your conversations with other mayors do these people want to hear from the candidates and they need to address tomorrow night? >> i think it's very important. i believe as we heard in the past, you're going to see and hear two fundamental differences as far as genders are concerned with regard to the american people. the american people want to hear about the issues that matter most to them. those are the issues around jobs, the economy, safety in america. their children and education. the things that really meet the american people where they are. that's why we are also here today and the next 30, 45 minutes where u.s. mayors will get together and talk about those very important issues, as well. >> unemployment in your state is above the national average, about 8.2% now. >> right. >> you criticized president obama during the convention for pressuring governor romney to release his tax returns, sa

-point lead over romney in ohio. but beware. michael delaware caucus had the lead back in 1988. this is a long haul, but it's a great start. tonight in our survey, i asked will mitt romney continue his campaign of lies at tomorrow's debate? 98% of you said yes, 2% said no. >>> coming up, the good news and bad news for voters. a key court case and voter registration scandal. detail when is we come back. >>> in the big finish tonight, the republicans suffered a setback in court. republicans in pennsylvania tried to suppress the vote through a tough voter i.d. law. it could have kept at least 758,000 people from voting. but today the judge blocked a key part of the law. his ruling means voters will be asked for an i.d. but they can go ahead and vote without one. the ruling only covers this election. the decision is bad news for republicans in pennsylvania. earlier this year one of the party leaders boasted the law would help mitt romney win the election. >> voter i.d., which is going to allow mitt romney to win the state of pennsylvania, done. >> pennsylvania is just one of 41 sta
in massachusetts to name a few and i have my own personal list which i'll get to. senator michael beties, a democrat here in his home state and michael steele, the former chairman of the republican national committee. both howard and michael are political msnbc analysts. i'll start with an elected official. the people that worked for the president had to come out and say he did well. everyone else said he didn't. >> i was in the hall so i can say i haven't seen it on tv. but on the substance, in colorado, we're a third republican and a third democratic and a third independent and we don't like people to say one thing in boston, one in denver and one thing in rural and one thing in urban and i think we heard more of that from mitt romney. >> who called him on that? we went an hour and a half before i went -- a couple days ago he talked about the pre-existing coverage and now you're saying you have a program and i'm going to take nationally based on the principles of massachusetts. >> i'll you another example that infuriates me. this $716 billion medicare issue in ryan's plan. >> the numbe
winner. thank you very much, michael. thank you, chris. it's always a pleasure. >>> a huge victory for democrats in pennsylvania in a hard-fought battle against that state's new voter i.d. law for now. a judge in the past few hours blocked the law from goalkeeper into effect. judge simpson ordered the sat not to enforce the voter i.d. requirement in this year's election, but it will go into full effect next year. opponents of the law say it would hurt voter turnover, especially among minorities and the leeld he who are likely to vote for democrats in that state. it was in june that a top state republican lawmaker predicted the law would help governor romney. >> which is going to allow governor romney to win the state of pennsylvania, done. >> and joining us now, judith brown, diana's co-director of the advancement project, a civil rights organization that filed the lawsuit. thank you for your time. we played that state lawmaker who said if that law was in effect in pennsylvania, he felt that governor romney would win that state, done. the polling shows opposite. nevertheless there
of this stuff. and michael isikoff is an nbc news national investigative correspondent. first of all, when you go out and have phony lists, that's a criminal matter apparently. >> yes, this is serious. the florida department of law enforcement is going to look into it because this is voter fraud. this is voter registration fraud, and it actually also shows that we already have laws in place to prevent voter fraud and, in fact, the state's going to go after them and that's good. >> give me a damage report on what would happen if these people got away with what they're doing. >> what would happen is really, you know, we know at the end of the day they would not be able to vote actually because, again, we have laws in place that would not permit them to vote. >> but they're showing up on registration lists and where they end up going. >> what would happen is actually this is a fact that, you know, technology allows for them to be knocked out, and that kind of fraud is not going to happen. but we have a problem with people trying to conjure up people that they want to vote republican, and importan

cl columnist, michael crowley, and here in new york ron christie. dana, if i might start with you. an insightful political observer such as yourself has seen these two gentlemen in many a debate. but if your path to success relies on mitt romney's comic timing, isn't the zinger likely to become something of a boomerang and hit mr. romney instead of his opponent? >> you know, everybody always remembers the great zingers. you know, usually something from ronald reagan, but here we go again expecting that people are going to try a little bit too hard. there's a real danger when you've been supplied with premixed, ready-made zingers to insert into the debate that mitt romney will insert them at the wrong time or say them not quite right. the only thing worse than having no zinger is having a zinger that comes off badly and comes back to bite you. so i think that's a perilous way to go, but i'll be there in denver, and i look forward to the attempts because it will make it far more interesting. >> indeed. we're delighted, ron, that you're here. you have devealed to us for the first tim

get it, michael dukakis and the pledge. this indian thing worked for him, this native-american thing worked for him for a short while. but he stayed on it. almost as if he has nothing else to attack her on and now this asbestos thing? he looks a little desperate right now. >> well, he probably is a little desperate right now. i'm not talking about the poll numbers, talking about the fact that president obama who is going to hammer mitt romney in his home state beat him by 20 points, that's a mathematical tough hill to climb. -- >> unless barack obama has a couple more bad debates. >> massachusetts won't matter. >> well, the margin does matter though. >> scott brown, clearly, apparently has not taken enough advantage of, is people sense that perhaps we should have one republican in washington. let's just send one republican in washington just to balance the scales, to keep people honest. this, you know, talking about elizabeth warren's indian heritage or whatever it is. >> come on. >> it doesn't register to people. it does not register. >> that's a quick hit and then move on. but will
points in 2008. michael bennet had the year's most expensive senate race. democrats now hold the governship. driven by a few things. an influx of highly educated west coast transplants. the state is younger and more diverse. more hispanic. the population is up by 20% since 2000 to more than 5 million. latinos now account for 21% of the population. president obama's strategy is repeating what he did in 2008. his margin of victory was 142,000 votes. 46,000 more votes than kerry got in 2004. they'll also vote on swing accounts that use to be republican. obama put on six counties that bush carried in 2004. including jefferson county. arapahoe. as jefferson county goes, so goes the nation. again, president bush won in 2004 by 9,000 votes. obama won there by more than 34,000 votes. but in 2010 again with a much tighter race. romney's strategy depends on winning the suburbs as well as driving up margins with social conservatives and active military and veterans in colorado springs and the rural areas of the state and doing well with voters here. the swing county like the state as a

many more this year. >> really quickly, we had the civil war in pennsylvania yesterday. michael vick, a guy that i'm cheering for, two fumbles. i hate to say it, he cost the game. >> and i don't care who would have gone into pittsburgh yesterday. it just felt like a game the steelers were destined to win. they still have new injuries to play with. they have to turn around and play thursday night. they ended up pulling it out. the eagles at 3-2, they still feel like they're so much worse than 3-2. >> all right, mike, sanchez's back is against the wall. >> he plays well when his back's against the wall. >> the gm's back is against the wall. he's one or two losses away from being fired. the entire jets organization's back is against the wall, and they're playing a really good team tonight. what will we see? >> i think we'll see sanchez play well, but there's too many injuries, too many deficiencies on both sides of the ball. i'd be shocked if the jets win. i won't be shocked if sanchez plays well. we should see more tebow in whatever package. >> they're going to use tebow. they've got t
to remember that, you know, thanks to two books, one by robert draper the other by michael grinwald we know between the time obama was elected president and the time he was inaugurated, republicans met at least twice, the leadership met at least twice to hatch a plan to just, you know, obstruct the incoming president no matter what. even though the economy was falling off the cliff it was all about obstruct him in 2009, to take back the house or both chambers in 2010 and win the white house in 2012. no matter what they didn't want president obama to succeed. they saw it as a success for him rather than a success for the country. >> i questiguess the question t have or quotes that will haunt him, the closing of guantanamo, comprehensive immigration reform. the problem with all that is the answer is republican stood in the way, didn't want to play ball, which you could say a fair assessment but does it sound after you have the same answer to each question, does it sound whiney? >> i think because the american people went through it with the president and watched the agonizing process on healt
